Leadership Changes in Tamturbo – Igor Nagaev appointed as CEO

On behalf of Tamturbo Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce, that the Board has appointed Igor Nagaev as CEO of Tamturbo starting from October 1, 2021.

Tamturbo is growing fast, and the team has built a solid foundation for future success during the past 10 years.

Now the company has moved into the sales and operations scale-up phase, which requires strengthening leadership in business development and building Tamturbo’s presence internationally.

Igor’s successful career and experience starting in oil-free compressed air sales, through global key account management, sales leadership, general management, start-up entrepreneurship, and lastly in starting up Tamturbo business development in Eastern Europe during the past 1,5 years, has formed an ideal background to lead Tamturbo to the next level.

There is also a need to have more cross functional leadership support in order to facilitate different growth initiatives. Timo Pulkki has been leading Tamturbo’s development to this point during the past 9 years, which makes him ideal to continue in this new role, and hence Timo is appointed as Chief Growth Officer.

Please join me in congratulating Igor and Timo, and welcoming them into their new roles.

Best regards,

Chris Lybaert

Chairman of the Board

Tamturbo Plc.

Timo Pulkki:

“I have had a great honor to build up and lead Tamturbo into successful breakthrough in the industrial compressed air market during the past 9 years. 

Tamturbo is growing fast by entering successfully the largest industrial oil-free compressed air customers in the world. Every day, our customers throughout the world witness and enjoy the superiority of our products in environmental sustainability and total cost of ownership. Hence, we have achieved a significant milestone by initiating an irreversible change in our industry towards our mission to make the compressed air world more environmentally sustainable. This is a major achievement, since the industrial oil-free air market has been in status quo situation for over 50 years. I’m very proud of it, and of our team making it happen!

This new phase has brought me into the decision to step down from CEO position. I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate Igor for his appointment, and to thank colleagues, customers, investors and other stakeholders for your great support throughout our journey. I’m convinced Igor is the best person to lead the company to the next level. I’m looking forward to continue working with you all in my new role.”

Igor Nagaev:

“I am pleased to step into the role of new Tamturbo CEO and opportunity to lead the team of talented, motivated, and passionate people.

Tamturbo’s presence on the industrial oil-free compressed air market confirms customer needs for the solution which gives the lowest Total Cost of Ownership and supports environmental sustainability. Such a positive market reaction shows a great business potential for Tamturbo and raises new challenges for the team. 

As a Tamturbo CEO I intend to keep company growth in the direction as it was successfully run during all previous years. I will focus on Tamturbo development as an international organization with a global presence, outstanding customers support with comprehensive product range requested by oil-free compressed air market. It is a very motivating and exciting challenge for me as a CEO. I am happy to give my energy, experience, and competencies to the Company.

I would like to thank Timo for his outstanding role in building Tamturbo as a company that helps to make our planet greener and better for us and future generations. I strongly believe that spirit of continuous innovations, customer-centricity, and willingness to do extra miles, created and built by Timo during the last 9 years will support our further growth.”
